The Weeknd's controversial performance at the Super Bowl halftime show

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye shocked the world, but not for good. After his Super Bowl Halftime performance, millions of memes flooded the Internet laughing about his show. Watch the video below to find out why everyone was so shocked!

  • The Weeknd became the first Canadian to do a solo act on the biggest show in sports.
  • At 30, Abel went from being practically homeless to the most important star of the current music scene.
  • Big hits like "Can't Feel My Face" and "Blinding Lights" led the artist to win three Grammy Awards and a net worth estimated at $100 million.
     

The presentation of The Weeknd at the Super Bowl halftime show did not leave anyone indifferent.

The singer was presented with his usual attire of recent times but a little more elegant.

For the event, he wore a Givenchy haute couture jacket that was actually handmade and took about 250 hours to make.

So let's not say that Abel didn't invest part of the $7 million he took out of his own pocket on his outfit.

Beyond the clothing that he already has us used to, The Weeknd had incredible vocals that reminded many of the mythical Michael Jackson and in fact, gave the vibes of the King of Pop.

With spectacular scenery and an army of dancers with bandages on their faces, the 30-year-old artist presented his greatest hits to an audience that filled only a third part of Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Although it did not have a great choreography, it is necessary to highlight the energy that The Weeknd put into his performance, which was also not accompanied by any guest artist.

As he himself said in interviews prior to his show.

At one point the singer entered a room with golden walls to sing "Can't Feel My Face", which left the audience speechless.

Few words but lots of funny memes on social media. Here's one of them.

The cherry on the cake was the final moment where Abel took the field as a stage with his legion of bandaged dancers to sing his great success "Blinding Lights".

If you see the reactions on social media about the presentation are mostly positive, some had some complaints such as the sound at the beginning of the concert where the voice of the artist could not be heard well.

In addition ,some fans and colleagues, were slightly disappointed.

Perhaps because the expectations of this show were very high due to the fact that a large budget had been announced for the staging and many expected a guest star to the concert that lasted about 13 minutes.

The reality is that The Weeknd gave his all on stage and showed that he is a first-class singer.

At least he didn't lip-sync like so many others did at the Super Bowl and kept his energy high and even throughout his performance.

In conclusion from yaay today we put a 10 to the performance of The Weeknd, and we want to highlight that he and Miley Cyrus were the first two artists to play live with an audience in a large-scale event since the coronavirus pandemic broke out in the world.

This is something very positive that gives us hope that in the very near future we will be able to attend live concerts again to catch a little positive energy from our favorite stars.

Here we leave you the complete performance of The Weeknd in the Super Bowl LV halftime show.
